Dorothy E. Gesecki, 88, of Nanticoke passed away Wednesday, April 24, 2013, in Wilkes-Barre General Hospital.
She was the daughter of the late Felix and Amelia Gorski and a graduate of Nanticoke High School.
Dorothy was employed by the Duplin Co. prior to raising a family. She was also employed as a receptionist, and worked many years as an employee of Old River Road Bakery until retirement.
Her greatest enjoyment was raising her adopted son, and later in life helping to raise her three granddaughters. They were her pride and joy. She also found great pleasure in all the pets she took care of throughout her life. She truly was an animal lover.
Dorothy was dedicated to her church family and was an active member of Nanticoke Christian Fellowship. She was a pro-life supporter who loved her faith and her brothers and sisters in the Lord.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Henry A. Gesecki, who passed away September 1970; and her brothers, Albin and Norbert Gorski.
Surviving are her son, Henry E. Gesecki; granddaughters, Cassandra (Dan Groeling, fiance), Candice (Matt) Gormley and Abigail (Jordan) Holt; nephews, Bob and Larry Gorski and Joseph Halik; nieces, Carol McDorman, Beverly Gorski, Marie Beers, Jeanne Solomon, Ann Marie Reuter and Jeanne Kostuk; and her pet, Colby the Cat.
A celebration of Dorothy's life will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday at Nanticoke Christian Fellowship, 112 S. Prospect St., Nanticoke.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be directed in Dorothy's name to the NCF Mission Fund or the local SPCA.
Arrangements are by Kielty-Moran Funeral Home Inc., 87 Washington Ave., Plymouth.
